Generally speaking, all Hawaiʻi- and Pacific-related library research follows the same steps, in this order: 1) Search Voyager; 2) Search the Hawaii-Pacific Journal Index (HPJI); 3) search databases specific to your topic. The below outlines an overview process meant to get you started; in this context, Google Scholar and Google Books can be powerful supplements to Voyager and HPJI; however, when it comes time to doing a literature search for a Masterʻs Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation, be aware that Google Scholar/Books donʻt capture everything there is.
